DAY 4 - SITE FINDINGS WORKSHOP
Following Tuesday's site visit and Wednesday data collecting session, this day was focused on drawing conclusions from the information found as a collective.
Groups began exploring the site further, expressed through analysis of potential toposcope locations, with analysis ranging from studies of the valleys contours and landscape profile, to more focused research such as different types of vegetation and trees within the area.
